Completing learning at home (homework) helps children to develop important skills, in particular those of independent learning. The government recommends that all schools should set regular homework for all children from Year 1.

At Northlands we believe the purposes of homework are:

  • To develop a home-school partnership

  • To consolidate and reinforce pupils' skills and understanding

  • To extend school learning

  • To encourage pupils as they get older to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own, and prepare them for the requirements of secondary school


Making Home Learning effective:

For homework to be a successful and valuable part of our pupils' development we will:

  • Differentiate homework tasks and explain their purpose to pupils

  • Help parents to understand and comply with their role in their child's homework

  • Make sure there is a consistent practice across the school

  • Give homework regularly, so that everyone knows what to expect each week

  • Have high expectations of quality and presentation of homework

  • Mark and provide feedback for homework according to school policy
